The Advantages of an APCO Whole-House Air Purifier

Spring is an excellent time to have air purification and filtration systems installed in your home. With the pollen count increasing and air conditioning systems turning on to send air around homes, there’s a higher chance of that your household’s air quality will suffer. Our indoor air quality specialists offer a number of quality purifiers and filters. One of our most popular installations is the APCO System.

What an APCO System Does

APCO stands for Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation. This air purifier is installed into the ductwork of a central air conditioning system and cleans the air as it passes using a combination of UV-C light and activated carbon that eliminates both germs and odors. An APCO system is especially effective against one of the most common of all indoor air pollutants, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde.

The Benefits of a APCO System

With all the types of air purification systems available, what sets the APCO Whole-House Air Purifier apart? Aside from all the contaminants that it eliminates, there are some other major benefits of this system:

  • No ozone: The APCO System eliminates bacteria, viruses, and odors without releasing harmful ozone into the air. In fact, it actually removes ozone from the air.
  • Clean air conditioner coils: The UV radiation in the purifier eliminates mold that forms along air conditioner coils. Mold on the coils isn’t just a source of bad odors in your home; it can also reduce AC system life and release harmful spores into the air.
  • Odor controls: The APCO system removes numerous odors—from pets to cooking—by changing odor-causing VOC molecules into water vapor.
  • Lifetime guarantee: The APCO System comes with a lifetime warranty on all parts except the UV lamp, which must have regular maintenance to replace it every few years.

There are different models and sizes of the APCO Whole-House Air Purifier to accommodate ductwork. Make sure that you contact experienced IAQ professionals to help you select and install the right air purifier.
